Facebook suspends dating service rollout in Europe after Irish officials search Dublin HQ

people-2557408_1920Question: What stories have you heard from good or bad dating app experiences? Are we going too far with the dating apps? Are the apps better or worse for relationships?

Facebook has suspended the rollout of its dating service in Europe planned for the eve of Valentine’s Day after officials from the Irish data regulator searched its offices. The regulator said in a statement that it “conducted an inspection” of Facebook’s offices in Dublin earlier this week after learning on February 3 about the US company’s plans to introduce the feature in the European Union. “We were very concerned that this was the first that we’d heard from Facebook Ireland about this new feature, considering that it was their intention to roll it out tomorrow, 13 February,” the Irish Data Protection Commission said in its statement.
